Do you dream of ducks coming in waves, feet down, over the dekes?

It’s ok, we did too, but it is not a dream. Argentina Duck Hunting is not like any other. Mile after mile of grain fields, marshes and potholes are filled with vast numbers of ducks that have never seen a hunter. These ideal conditions make our private ranches a place where multiple species of duck thrive and migrate year after year. We regularly take bags mixed with Rosy-billed Pochard, Red Shovelers, Brazilian Speckled Teal, Silver Teal (Cappuccino Teal) , Cinnamon Teal, White-cheeked Pintail, Yellow-billed Pintail, Black Bellied Tree Duck and Chiloe Widgeon.

Rancho Salvaje’s private duck marshes and ranches provide exclusive hunting in private blinds, which means you receive individual attention. Your duck hunt each day begins with a delicious breakfast before you are driven to ponds a short distance away. Hunting is done in blinds either as a single hunter or in pairs. Your guide sets the decoys, sees to your needs in the field and retrieves your ducks. You don’t even have to worry about carrying the heavy strap of ducks back to the truck. Duck hunting seasons in Argentina have been extraordinary during the past few years. The Buenos Aires and La Pampa provinces of Argentina contain incredible numbers of ducks that allow limits in minutes. The morning hunting session is followed by a gourmet lunch featuring the unique wines of Argentina, a relaxing nap, and ends with afternoon excursions for dove, perdiz, pigeon, wild boar and other big game animals.

Beautiful Ducks of Argentina
Hunters wishing to add breathtakingly-beautiful ducks to their wall or mantle-piece do not leave Argentina disappointed. Our experienced guides can also skin and prepare these beautiful birds for your taxidermist at home.

The Silver Teal, Red Shoveler, and Chiloe Widgeon are spectacular mounts when placed next to their cousins from the north. The greatest trophy is fill out the “Pintail Trifecta”-that is, to add the two beautiful pintail ducks common to this area, the White-cheeked Pintail and the Yellow-billed Pintail, to a North American Pintail. These three birds comprise all of the American pintails and make a gorgeous mount.
